Success with Sport Education at a Secondary Level: Implementation and Examples from a Basketball Season
Mercier, Kevin
Strategies: A Journal for Physical and Sport Educators, v23 n3 p12-16 Jan-Feb 2010
Based upon ten years of teaching and modifying the Sport Education Model at the high school level, this article summarizes how the author has had success in using the model to increase enthusiasm, student learning and quality participation in physical education. What started out as one teacher in the district testing the model with one class a decade ago, has evolved into a program with many teachers teaching multiple sections using the Sport Education Model. In this article, the author presents a brief background on the Sport Education Model, followed by an account of how to initiate implementation, including keys for success. Additionally, examples from a sport education high school basketball unit, which include how to use peer teaching and various assessments, are provided. (Contains 2 figures.)
